Dental Implant Benefits

Tooth loss is a real world problem that you will probably end up having to deal with at some point in your life. It is for this reason that there are so many different teeth restoration treatments available to patients. However, not all restoration treatments are made equally. In fact, dental implants are quickly beginning to replace other, more outdated forms of teeth restoration thanks to the many benefits that come with them. Here at Redwood City Dental Care, we are happy to provide our Redwood City and Dublin, CA area patients with quality dental implant results. We encourage you to read on to learn about some of the benefits our patients experience after receiving dental implants from Dr. Ihab Hanna.

Appearance

Part of the reason why so many of our patients love their dental implants is because of the way they look. Every individual part of a dental implant is custom made for each patient. Thanks to this special attention Dr. Hanna pays to each part of the restoration, we can ensure that your implant fixture fits comfortably among your natural teeth and the crowns that top them look identical to your real teeth. We are even sure to shade your dental crowns so that they are the same color as your natural teeth. As a result of this extra work, our patients have exclaimed how happy they are with both the appearance and functionality of their replacement teeth.

Oral Health

Unlike other teeth restoration treatments, dental implants can actually greatly benefit your oral health. The reason for this is a process called osseointegration, which occurs during the recovery period of the dental implant process. Osseointegration is a natural and organic process that works to permanently integrate your dental implants into your oral anatomy by having your jawbone thread itself around the implant, pulling it firmly into place.

What makes osseointegration great for your oral health is the fact that the regeneration of the jawbone that makes it possible also strengthens the surrounding area. This will return strength to your surrounding teeth, which was previously lost due to your missing tooth weakening your jawbone. If your jawbone has been damaged due to tooth decay, osseointegration will also benefit these areas, strengthening them and making them more resistant to infection.

Bite Pressure

One reason why so many people are moving away from traditional teeth restoration treatments is because of how weak they are. Treatments such as dental bridges and dentures possess only half the bite strength of your natural teeth, making it difficult to eat certain foods with them. However, dental implants provide results that are just as strong and capable as your natural teeth. Because implants are naturally fused to your jawbone thanks to osseointegration, your dental implants are able to provide the same level of bite strength as your natural teeth. In fact, they may even be stronger than your real teeth.
